Book Mania in Waynesville

I had a very interesting day in Waynesville at Book Mania. Margaret Osondu hosted another year of authors coming to the area for classes, talks, and to bring the author to the area for book signings and one on one time with each of them. I had one on one time with authors I knew and those I know through FaceBook and I was able to meet them in person.

I met authors like Jayne Ferrer, Susan Reinhardt, Dr. Lin Step, Angela Dove, Kathryn Magendi, Barbara Duncan, Bahia Abrams, Mindy Friddle, Rose Senehi, Celia Miles, and so many more I can’t remember all their names.
I was able to hear Angela Dove speak about her book, No Room For Doubt,and the process she went through to write it and I was impressed and I look forward to reading her book. As a matter of fact, I want to read all of their work and all at one time. Guess I’ll have to settle for one at a time and enjoy them that way.
I just love this area and the arts available here. I feel so lucky to be here in the Maggie Valley, Waynesville, and Asheville area.
Now, back to reading Kathryn Magendi’s , Tender Graces. I can hardly set it down; it’s such a riveting book full of characters that I feel I really know.
